BEVERLY BANKER

Beverly Banker (Wilson), a lifelong resident of Renton, Washington, passed away on November 13th at the youthful age of 90. In 2006, Bev was preceded in death by her husband James Edward Banker, the love of her life after 28 years of marriage. Also preceding her was her stepson Edward Lee Banker and grandson John Banker, her parents Robinson and Marion Wilson and her three sisters, Betty, Patricia and Marilyn.

She is survived by her children; Larry (Brooke) Ford, Carolyn Ford, Gary (Valerie) Ford, Shelly Ford (Gary Watts); stepchildren Virginia Banker, Nick (Joann) Banker and Vicki Ledger; 12 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren; her loving caregiver, Geofrey Driver and her beloved dog, Wilson Banker (Willie).

A 1947 graduate from Renton High School, Bev and Glen Ford were married in 1948, for 26 years, and led an active life with many outdoor adventures. She found the time to teach herself architecture and bookkeeping. A skilled manager, she was also a Den Mother and Campfire Leader, and she spent many years on bowling leagues. After her marriage to James (Ed) Banker in 1978, she actively helped manage their business, Banker’s Auto Rebuild and Towing in Renton. They enjoyed traveling the world on cruise ships, in their motorhome and enjoyed spending time at their second home in Reno, Nevada.

In her later years, after selling their business, she enjoyed her new home on Renton Hill, growing roses and tomatoes and spending time with Willie, Geofrey and her family. She was dearly loved and will be truly missed by her family and those fortunate enough to have known her.
